Glenn was my first cousin but I really grew to appreciate him a few years ago. My dad was ill for about a year and Glenn became a frequent visitor to my parents' home. I live a few hours away so I didn't see him often. Sometimes when I went to see my parents, Glenn would stop by for a visit too. He was such a fun guy to have around and a real breath of fresh air for my parents. He continued to visit my mom regularly for years after my dad passed away, even up until fairly recently. It's hard to put into words how much his positive support and lighthearted visits meant to all of us. I wish I could thank him now, simply for being there. It's difficult to process the fact that he's no longer with us. He'll be missed more than these few words can express...

I worked for an accounting firm that had a contract for service with IBM. Glenn serviced our typewriters many, many times. He was always smiling and brought joy when he arrived. I was always glad when he answered the call for service. I even took a typewriter to his home one time for him to repair after he retired. I have fond memories of our conversations and know he will be greatly missed by his family and also by associates and friends.

Glenn Lee was such a nice person. You could be having a bad day and he could always cheer you up. He was always smiling and such a good person to work with. Debbie and Brian know you will miss him,
but he loved you very much. I'm sure you will have good memories.

Glenn Lee was such a joy to have as a co-worker for many years. I am saddened about his passing away. Glenn always brought a ray of sunshine to the people he encountered. I pray that the entire family are experiencing God's comfort.
